Awesome Views and Lovely Service on the Pacific Pearl

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
The cruise was just as I expected it to be and more! My family of four (2 adults & 2 boys ,12 & 16) had a fab time visiting New Zealand once again! The views were awesome, there's always something lovely to see while we're sailing especially the unforgettable Fjordland NAtional Park! The trip was made equally great due to the attentive and friendly staff. From embarking at our home port in Sydney to the various ports we visited, we felt at the top of the world!

Food was nice, though it may time a while to get used to anytime dining as we have to book each time before we dine at night if we want a proper table. But as a whole, it was still worth it! Entertainment was superb especially the laser show and the acrobatic performers who were truly amazing and talented!

We love each port we visited. We're glad we joined the walking tour of Akaroa and also boarded a yacht to see more wildlife and breathtaking sights around Otago HArbour. We saw fur seals, blue penguins More and lots of otehr amazing flora and fauna around the South Island and also in Wellington. At the latter, we rode the cable car to see the grand Botanical garden and sweeping views of the city of Wellington. We were also thrilled to visit the WETA cave and met a few actors who made the LOTR movie! It was a bonus posing with "GOllum" and also a couple of actors who played a Sauron and a peasant in teh LOTR. It was a magical time for all of us, young and old! Less

Cabin review: L

There were plenty of cupboard space for the four of us. The beds were comfy and nicely made whenever possible.
